A little update on my dogs behavior:

On Thursday April 21 she had at least one seizure while I was gone to the store. My wife thinks she had more but wasn't able to discern exactly how many. She is epileptic but is on medication. The meds work great when she takes them but you can't miss a single dose or she will have a seizure. She has been known to "cheek" the medicine and spit it out later and this could have happened but I'm not sure.

Its 4:35 a.m. and she got me out of bed about 30 mins ago. She is very active this morning...not scared or anything like that. Best way I could put it that she is really alert and was concerned enough to wake me up, which very odd for her. I checked and saw we had a few quakes in the area and thought it might be interesting to some

There were many quakes overnight.
There are two possibilities.
Scott Ausbrooks is right and the quakes have diminished when compared to the time before the injection shut down. As in Colorado, the earthquakes continued for many months afterward. This is to be expected as the fault settles and readjusts. If this is the case, then there is nothing to worry about regarding these recent quakes. This can be considered another cluster. The flurry is similiar to the other periods of activity.

However, the quakes seem to be dictated by rainfall. Since it is very obvious the quakes were caused by injection, this means the main factor is fluid. Recent rainfall in Arkansas could be responsible for this latest cluster. If this is the case, then there may be no stopping the fault from a complete rupture. I am very fearful that the damage has already been done, and this will lead to major event. It is also curious that there is no other activity in the eastern States. Normally there are a couple here and there. But there is nothing. Only the Arkansas fault.

Why do people ignore the dangers of the New Madrid Seimic Zone?
It's everywhere, all the time.
It's an epidemic.

"Eyes wide shut."

heck no... its over 200 pages LOL and I already have my hands full in the Japanese nuke thread. And I am quite certain that my three posts are not in that list
I also tend not to concern myself too much with quakes below 4.0, because every where I have lived there have been hundreds of such annually... despite what some think... a continuous bumping of the plates does keep pressure off. Its when things stop shaking that you start to worry

I simply asked where the scientific evidence was that Memphis is about due for the big one... surely should be at the tip of your fingers, no?

Then try reading the first few pages. That might aid your comprehension. Couldn't hurt. In any essay, the main points are discussed in the opening paragraph. Right after the fear mongering title.

Sorry, all but one of your links have been discussed and posted. And I'm sorry to say that you are wrong about the earthquakes in Arkansas. You may live where it's better to have lots of small ones as the plates slide past each other. But these are mid-continental earthquakes, which have a different dynamic than those along plate boundries. Again, this information could have been found in the first few pages.

There is a fault running through Memphis according to the geologist's tomography. Mid-continental earthquakes cause loads on adjacent fault zones. Arkansas nieghbours Memphis. Not to mention the unknown faults. And the new fault near Marianna. Given the new study on mid-continetal faults, and the history of the series of eathquakes during 1811/1812, it is reasonable to conclude that an earthquake swarm in Arkansas will have affects on the rest of the faults in the region.

Let's not forget that the New Madrid earthquakes in 1811 started in Arkansas.

So if the title of my thread is alarmist, don't blame me. Blame history, and the researchers. I'm just retelling the stories.

I was a kid the last time we had an eq drill in school-

I rationalized that the official renting from someone posted on the first page would be logical for that area. Now an awareness program has been implemented and people are being reminded about caves under the middle TN area.

If the quakes are influenced by rain things are going to start picking up. Some areas of the Ozarks received over two inches of rain last night. A tornado actually touched down near where I grew up...and the same area is under a tornado warning now. Flooding is the long term affect of these storms and appears likely to happen. This weather is not unusual in the Ozarks at all. If you don't like the weather here just wait an hour. Just a note that it appears that what Grandpa taught me about the Kingfishers must hold some truth

Yep, we're all under a flash flood warning, some areas are already flooding, and we could receive (atleast where I am in the River Valley) atleast 2 inches of rain today/tonight, and possibly 10 inches in the next few days.

Not to mention (but you probably already know), you guys are also on Tornado alert for today, so be careful.

Why? because one day when people get SMART, they will find a way to use the radiation DIRECTLY, like a solar panel does, instead of boiling water. When that happens all that waste stored in Yucca Mountain would make us energy wealthy

And you can't pollute the area anymore than it already is, because Yucca Mountain is on the Nevada Test Site right next to all those atomic bomb craters. That ground is already so saturated with plutonium and everything else hot that it will be deadly for a 100,000 years. So what does it matter a few more rems, when the benefit is safe storage away from populated areas

The Russians have figured this out... they are actually BUYING our nuclear waste from foreign countries (mostly military) and putting it away for the future when we learn how to use the energy properly

There has not been the 1st and I repeat that, there has not been the 1st, earthquake drill done at the Vilonia Schools. I have gone over it with my son over and over again to make sure he is aware of what course of action to take.

I was joking around yesterday about coming home and seeing a few quakes with everyone. Today I come home, and the house is swaying again, the plumb bob is swinging and we have had 9 quakes and lots of rain. I went through Clinton as the tornado sirens were sounding and just kept going plowing through to get home. Several rivers and creeks were very close to overflowing, waterfalls pouring off the side of the cliffs that usually are dry, we are under flood warnings all over the state. We have gotten a lot of rain and I am very concerned about it, as I mentioned last week on here, that I expected the quakes to start back up with all the rain we have been and were expecting to be getting on top of the fracking. I know that Robin is right the damage has been done and I think the officials know about it as well, and why they stopped the injections and no new injection wells are being allowed at this point. I think there is a lot more we don't know as well and it's not a good picture or outcome.

Thank you Puterman. I appreciate all the help that you have been and are continuing to be and the help that you give.

It is wonderful to have this united group of people here that really care and answer questions and are there for us on the front lines of what is going on. We have learned a lot together here. I consider you all, part of my family and I appreciate each and every one of you as I am sure others do too, that are living here or close to here.

And the rain continues with flash flood warnings in NWA. The warnings and cautions about the flooding in the White River Basin and going into the Buffalo...from there we know where its going to end up. Personally I am about tired of the rain, but they are talking the possibility of 10 more inches. They are already closing roads. The dizziness and ears ringing are coming back strongly and I'm about to that "do it and get it over with" stage.

Flooding is getting bad around Fort Smith. It is supposed to rain for pretty much 24 hours straight atleast, possibly more.

The tornado-creating storm cell passed overhead-it was HUGE, one of those that was creating pop up tornadoes. You could not see it coming, the tornadoes just happened where they could. A relative of mine is a pro tornado chaser (and meteorologist) and he was telling me he thought the airport tornado was F1-F2. It materialized right overhead on the highway by the airport and skipped due East. I know this because the tornado chasers where trapped in it. It was filmed, and may be on the Discovery Channel this fall.

The tornado paths were very clear. We were doing some errands Holy Sat and had to go through the devastated areas. I am betting the Weather service will declare it a cluster of tornadoes. It was a long event of storms, with slow movement and bad mini storms popping up. For over an hour a mini would pop up, move, then another. The front was hanging overhead.

The Bridgeton tornado did F4 damage and was 1200 ft wide at the worst. The North Bellfontaine tornado was (prob) F2 and damage was 50-70 ft wide for 2/10 mile at a time (skipping). Cannot speak to the South tornadoes. I saw the North ones' damage and those were the ones I heard good info on.

Thank you to all who cared. I am 20 mins from the airport, but the closest tornado touch down was about 7 miles away. The pressure changes were horrible.

Wow don't know if there's any connection to the gas problems in the Midwest but thought I'd bring this to everyone's attention anyway.

A massive explosion obliterated an empty house on Long Island this morning, blowing out the windows of neighboring homes, sending 21 people to area hospitals and rocketing shoes, bedding and an umbrella into the top branches of neighboring trees. The 10:44 a.m. blast at 43 Fourth St. in the Suffolk County hamlet of Brentwood could be heard seven miles away in Islip. The deafening explosion may have been caused by a ruptured gas line but investigators have not ruled out arson.

The explosion was heard seven miles away.

....Now under a boil order here in Bella Vista......the rain just wont stop! Ive lived in this area for over 15 years and this is by far the worst flooding ive seen here.

Supposedly that home was under some sort of renovation, so luckily it was empty on Easter morning. Most likely a gas leak somewhere.
It would have been devastating had there been a family living there.

I was too tired last night to make a video but the movement is back and I just made this one and uploaded it.

Be safe tonight my friends in Arkansas. We have tornado watches and warnings and on top of all the flooding, just wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and hopes for a better tomorrow.
